The India-bound 2016 Renault Koleos has been launched in Malaysia for RM 172,800 (INR 28,34,860.47). The second generation model will be available in the country only in the SCe 170 engine model and only in one standard grade. Four colour choices are available: Meissen Blue, Universal White, Black Metallic and Grey Metallic.
The CMF-C/D platform-based 2016 Renault Koleos is powered by the QR25DE 2.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine that is also employed in the Nissan X-Trail. In the Malaysian-spec Koleos, this engine has been tuned to produce 170 PS (177.47 hp) and 226 Nm of torque, and is paired to the X-Tronic continuously variable transmission. Power is sent to the front wheels; an all-wheel drive system isn’t available even optionally.
Key features of the Malaysian-spec 2016 Renault Koleos are Pure Vision full-LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, twelve parking sensors, 7-inch TFT screen for the instrument panel, R-LINK 2 8.7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, 8-speaker 3D sound system by Arkamys, six airbags, ESC, BSW, ASR, ABS with EBD and EBA.
The 2016 Renault Koleos is manufactured at the company’s Busan plant in South Korea for all markets except China. The new generation Koleos is expected to be launched in India by the end of 2017.
